Police are investigating two potentially related shooting incidents in East Oakland on Thursday morning in which residents were shot at by a group of suspects who may have been attempting to commit burglaries. Neither resident was injured in the shootings, police said. The first came at 6:30 a.m., when a resident in the 9400 block of Thermal Avenue heard noises at the front door. Upon opening the door, the resident found a group of several 16- to 18-year-old males walking away, police said.
As they fled from the scene, at least one of the suspects fired shots at the house, but the resident was not hit by the gunfire, police said. Later, at around 8:30 a.m., another person found a group of males apparently attempting to commit a burglary in the 1900 block of 102nd Avenue, police said. The group fled, firing shots back at the citizen as they ran away. That person was not injured, police said. Police believe the two incidents may be related.
Anyone with information about the possibly related incidents has been asked to contact Oakland police’s Major Crimes Section at (510) 238-3326.
